    Ban Anglo-Saxon? The Push To Remove Anglo-Saxons From Academic Discourse

    There is a terrible new development in Medievalism. A push from activists to completely ban the use of the word Anglo-Saxon.

    It started with grievance monger Rambaran-Olm complaining that Anglo-Saxon is exclusionary and that AS studies are too white. Her blogs and complaints resulted in the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists (ISAS) agreeing to change its name.

    I watched this before. It's bad enough most don't know Hengest and Horsa, just Arthur and Merlin. Let the Welsh have their traditions and us have ours.
